Welcome to the KEC (Knowledge Exchange and Commercialisation) Blog! This blog is designed with impact in mind; be it at an early stage, where our research and researchers are involved in knowledge exchange activities or later in the research lifecycle, when research can result in engagement with industry and/or commercial or societal benefit. This blog gives a voice to Institute researchers and invited guests working with us on exciting projects.
